Abhay Deol wears a mischievous gleam in his eye and thinks nothing of taking risks in the roles he plays – be it as superman or a heart broken junkie.

Basics on Abhay
Born on 15th March 1976 in Mumbai, India as Abhay Singh Deol, he can boast of Ajit Singh Deol, a director and producer, for his father; actor Dharmendra as his uncle and actors Bobby Deol, Sunny Deol and Esha Deol as cousins.

He was active in theater while in school, which motivated him to pursue acting in movies. Painting, philosophy and journalism were his other interests. He completed his graduation from Mumbai University and traveled all the way to Los Angeles to fine tune his acting skills in a two year acting course.
